What if you had to pay higher taxes if you didn't vote in each and every election? It seems to me that it would solve multiple problems.
First, it would get pretty nearly everyone out to vote. It would require every state to allow anyone and everyone to vote. That's because if a state didn't allow someone to vote, that would cost that person money and that would be viewed as being the same as a poll tax, which is illegal.
It would raise some taxes, and would make elections somewhat more fair, except for those gerrymandered districts. What it wouldn't do is make more people better informed. More's the pity.
